James Murphy, a U.S. Marine Corps sniper is back from
Afghanistan when he finds out his sister has died from a
drug overdose. James' sister was his closest family and he
is determined to take revenge on the man he thinks is
responsible. The problem with his plan is, he acts without a
plan and heads to Mexico in search of a well-known drug
dealer. Seeing as how drug dealers usually own the cops in
the areas they live, James quickly finds himself in jail.
Now the guys on James' squad and his girlfriend are
determined to break him out of jail at any cost. The group
heads to Mexico and plan the escape.
Ryan David Jahn has a good idea with THE BREAKOUT. He takes
an interesting and messed up group of characters and shows
the loyalty Marines feel for each other. He also shows the
level of corruption that exists in Mexico. My only problem
with this story is the fact that a group of Americans down
in that part of Mexico would have drawn the attention of the
bad guys long before they made, much less acted out a plan
to save James. Ignoring the fact that they should have all
died very quickly, the story is intense and the actual bad
guys surprise you. There are a few twist and much more to
the story than just the actual breaking out of James. THE
BREAKOUT is an interesting read, you will enjoy it.
James Murphy is a Marine Corps sniper. Heâ€™s done two tours
in Afghanistan. Heâ€™s considered an American Hero. And James
is out for revenge.
Alejandro Rocha, a massively powerful drug kingpin who
operates out of La Paz, Mexico, is responsible for Jamesâ€™s
sister, Laylaâ€™s death, and he intends to make Rocha pay for it.
James goes AWOL from his unit and travels to Mexico, ready
to enact bloody vengeance, but before he can go through with
his plan, he is arrested by the crooked police of La Paz.
Heâ€™s quickly thrown into a dangerous prison on trumped-up
charges. He knows he is marked for death while in this
prison and thereâ€™s nothing he can do about it. However,
there is a group of people who can do something about it.
Discovering that James is wasting away in a Mexican prison,
the marines in his unit decide to risk court-martial
themselves and go AWOL as well, ready to go to war in order
to break their brother out. And thatâ€™s just the beginning of
the mayhem and violence.
